Wayway Wolverines swing a couple deals after tough start to MJHL season

After a 0-5 start to their MJHL season, the Wayway Wolverines have made a little shake-up to their roster.

First off, the Wolverines traded 20 year old defenceman Kristjon Finnson (pictured above) to the Winnipeg Blues in exchange for 19 year old defenceman Connor Dunn.

Finnson, a Stonewall MB product in 145 career games with the Wolverines had 3 goals, 17 assists for 20 points.

Dunn, a 6'3, 183lb Tri-Cities, Washington product was in his rookie year with the Blues after spending last year with the Missoula Maulers of the WSHL.


In the 2nd trade, the Wolverines sent the team's current leading scorer 18 year old F Ty Enns & 2001 prospect Kolton Shindle to the MJHL's Portage Terriers in exchange for 19 year old forward Brandon Stanley, 18 year old forward Brenden Martin and a 1st round pick in the 2017 MJHL draft.

Enns (pictured above bottom) had 18 goals, 18 goals for 36 points in 55 games last season with Wayway. He currently had 6 points in 5 games this season.  Shindle was chosen by the Wolverines with the 2nd overall pick in this past June's MJHL draft and is currently playing with the Pembina Valley Hawks (MMAAAHL)

In return the Wolverines get a couple pieces up front from the Thunder Bay, ON area.

Stanley (pictured above top left)  helped the Terriers capture their 2nd straight MJHL title last season compiling 16 goals, 19 assists for 35 points in 54 games. This season, he had 4 points in 5 games with the Terriers.

Martin (pictured above top right) , a 5'11, 175lbs forward was pointless in 4 games with the Terriers this season. Last year with the Manitoba Midget AAA Hockey League's Kenora Thistles he had 22 goals and 52 points in 43 games.
